On July 29, 2015 Police were called to a North end variety store regarding a possible impaired driver. Police spoke with the driver and detected an odour of alcohol coming from inside the vehicle.
The officer administrated the approved screening device in which the driver failed. She was arrested and brought back to the St. Thomas Police Station where she provided breath samples that registered over three times the legal limit.
The 54 year-old female from St. Thomas was charged with driver motor vehicle with more than 80mgs of alcohol in blood. She was also charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance. She was later released with a future court date.
